Waitrose Category Manager: Wines, Beers and Spirits

I joined the wine buying team at Waitrose in 2008, and am currently the Category Manager for Drinks. This means that I look after our content, events, tastings and training for our Specialists in shops as well as being engaged as a subject matter expert in many fields relating to wine and spirits, for example on sustainability. I have been a wine and spirits judge for a number of international competitions over the years, including Concours Mondial, IWC, ISC and IWSC and am delighted to be on the London Wine Competition panel, especially with its focus on putting the customer at the heart of the awards.
